    Now I don't know about you but it irritates the hell out of me to have to watch Nadal tugging at his nads every chance he gets.

    I understand the importance of fashion but, surely Nike can get some advice from the Italians on how to cut a pair of trousers.

    The producers of the Australian Open Tennis are doing a great job of trying to disguise it but it's a lost cause. It's bad enough that Nike doesn't do anything about it themselves. I mean what are they thinking. Do they expect the average Nadal wannabe to say "hey, when I grow up I want to tug my pants out of my crotch every shot like Nadal".

    It's fashion gorn mad.

    Those stupid pants make Nadal my least favorite tennis player (ok... maybe his attitude pisses me off a little, but mostly it's just those ugly pants). I don't really like Federer that much but I'm glad he's around even if it's only to beat Nadal in finals.

    Point taken Ms Velvet, but when you float off in a reverie and find yourself puffing languidly on a Gitane in a private carriage on the Trans Siberian Express and Nadal is breathing heavily on the back of your neck, surely you don't picture him tugging his crotch seam out of his bum crack?

    My reveries don't include Gitanes... or garments for that matter. :D

    I have 2 pairs of Nike running shorts, and I didn't realize that the cut of the shorts were so much better with other brands until I started buying Brooks and another brand (I forget). Nike Sphere running shirts chafe my nipples too! :p It doesn't happen with any other brand.

    Linky?

    You wear your shorts pulled up over your nipples? No wonder they chafe.

    There's no linky yet, I think this is a world first observation. I'll try and get a shot of the television next time he's on. It's pretty comical. I think we have an 'emperors new clothes' situation.

    PS good point about the shorts.

    You misplace "i" with an "o" accidentally, and this is what happens.

    This is a lesson to all the younger members out there: Don't drink and post.

    Nike's fashion sense is just awful. They're trying too hard to bring the 'ghetto' into every sport.

    Now compare that with Adidad - sheer elegance and functional as well.

    A few quick snaps? Methinks Dogbone doth protest far too much.

    That's not his nads. Nads hang out around the front. He seems to be adjusting something near his back door.

    Either

    a:his G=string is too tight and is diving through t'backdoor for a cuppa tea and a chocolate biccy,

    or b: he's trying to push his 'roids back in.

    I think they're clamdiggers. Certainly digging his clam. Or maybe he's going for the camel's toe look.
